Best of California Brewfest

Unlimited Beer and Sunshine. Need we say more?

The CA State Fair & Food Festival is excited to announce Best of California Brewfest!

Last year we featured more than thirty of the most incredible breweries in California. To select this year’s honorees, our experts will begrudgingly spend 3 full days tasting well over a thousand entries in over sixty categories to bring you California’s very best!

This years venerated brews will be announced soon, so check back on this page or follow us on social media to find out which brews will make Best of California Brewfest the hoppiest one yet!

All tickets include entry to the fair. Attendees must be 21+ and have a valid I.D. Please drink and transport responsibly.
